Hall of Fame chances for Art Modell decrease

November 29, 2007 |

The NFL has announced its 25 finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and one name that was missing was…..Art Modell.
 
Art made the list last year, and this I think is maybe a sad but true indication that Art is never going to see the Hall of Fame if not ever, probably not while he is alive to enjoy it. From the little that I have learned from being around the Hall of Fame process every year at the Super Bowl, going from being on the list of 25 for a couple of years to not making that list is a pretty defining indication.
 
Here is the list of the 25 semi finalist that will be narrowed down to 15 in mid January, and then the Class of 08 will be announced during Super Bowl weekend.
